    2018 MLB Draft

    Give me Madrigal at 4. And look who MLB has as the 46th prospects (our pick) Seth Beer! Coincidental? I think not!!! Give me Madrigal and Beer at 1 and 2.

    2018 MLB Draft

    Three of the preseasons top 5 are seen to now be late first/fall into the second. If Hankins (doubtful), Turang or DeSadas fall to us in the second I hope we pull the trigger once we are on the clock

    Jose Abreu

    If we were to be offered a guy like David Dahl, we would be insane to pass that up. I think that could be about the top end of what we get with maybe little else involved. And I'd be fine with that. Even that may be too much

    Jose Abreu

    I love what the Rockies have in the minors and some of their young MLB players. I think they're a fit. As I look at the standings almost every team that is leading their division could use an upgrade at 1B. I think a lot of teams will be calling.

    Jose Abreu

    With a little over two months until the trade deadline there is little doubt that teams, along with the White Sox will explore a trade for Jose Abreu. With 1.5 years left of control and him still producing offensively we should be receiving calls. Now what Hahn asks for is everbody guess because Abreu's value is hard to guess. 1B/DH players just aren't valued like they used to be. There are a lot of contending teams that could upgrade at 1B. What would people expect from teams that may need a 1B in a trade for Abreu? and what teams may be interested?

    Yeah Collins is starting to turn into a non-prospect for me too... Apart from the walks I don't see how people like him

    QUOTE (iamshack @ Apr 17, 2018 -> 01:27 PM) I couldn’t disagree more. Yoan has a the hard part down: he understands the strike zone. Many prospects, and many current Sox players, for that matter, do not understand the strike zone/see pitches nearly as well. Secondly, when he does make contact, he’s crushing balls. Clearly he has some swing and miss to his game, and that is always going to be the case. However, I think the funk he’s in is just one where he’s trying to stay true to his approach a bit too much, in the face of the League making adjustments to that approach. He’s getting behind in the count far too often, because he has a tendency to look at the first pitch. From there, he just struggles because he’s so often 0-2, 1-2. I think yesterday’s first PA was perfect. He needs to be ready to jump on that first pitch if its grooved right in the zone until the League stops doing that. Just that adjustment alone I think would have major positive consequences. Does he though? He gets lots of walks, yes! But he also strikes out looking more than stevie Wonder would.

    Can I Revise My Seasons Win Total Prediction?

    I said 65 from the beginning and I still love the #/.. I never understood people thinking we'd be significantly better than last year. No Quintana, Robertson, Kahle, Swarzak, Frazier, Melky and whoever else for half a year. If we hit 70 wins that would be great. But the only way to judge if this is a successful season is the improvement from the young guys. Primarily the ones we need to be good (yoan, Anderson, gio, lopez, and the many many prospects in the minors).

    QUOTE (bmags @ Apr 17, 2018 -> 11:13 AM) For a .240 player that doesn't hit 40 bombs to be "not useful" they would need to be: - Bat only - Have no baserunning value This is why it's so crazy to be this fatalistic about Moncada this early in. He has so many plus tools any one of them could be used to pull him into "good" territory. And if the hit tool develops into average, he suddenly becomes "very good". We may find that his hit tool is so off he is never an MVP player. That sucks. But man, there is a lot of baseball left to be played. Justin Smoak and Yonder Alonso 8 years into their careers suddenly became very useful players. You don't want that for Moncada, but there are good signs with him. If it takes him 8 years to figure it out, he won't be on the Sox when he does..

    QUOTE (Jose Abreu @ Apr 10, 2018 -> 02:21 PM) I really don't think he'd do any better as a LHH vs LHP. Give him more time as a righty. In the past, he has been better from the right side than the left. Can you show me the stats? I was never ever under the impression that he was a good RH hitter. I could be wrong.. but.. prove it

    QUOTE (fathom @ Apr 10, 2018 -> 02:10 PM) Exit velocity doesn't matter if you don't make contact My exact point. IDK why he is still switch hitting.. I don't care how young he is. He needs to go complete lefty.
